The lucky winner of an annual sweepstakes by property channel HGTV will get their own remodeled Minneapolis home worth more than $700,000.

The prize for the 10th anniversary of the HGTV Urban Oasis Giveaway is this 1920s-era home near Minnehaha Falls.

The 1,800 square-foot house has been given a "top-to-bottom" renovation, transforming it into a "Scandinavian-inspired farmhouse is reflective of Viking and Nordic culture."

Check out the before and after pictures that shows the work that has gone into the house.

As you can see, the 3-bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home has been brought into the 21st Century (though we're not sure about the pink ceiling).

HGTV's decision to choose Minneapolis for the 10th version of its Urban Oasis competition comes in the same year it has launched a new property series, Stay or Sell, that is based in the Twin Cities, featuring Minnetonka property developers Heather and Brad Fox.

Eligible fans can enter for a chance to win twice per day at HGTV.com/UrbanOasis.

Expect a lot of competition though, last year's Urban Oasis giveaway, in Ohio, received 65.3 million entries.

A one-hour "Urban Oasis Special" will premiere on HGTV on Wednesday, Oct. 2 at 6 p.m. Central.
